Servings 4


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup cold butter cut into small cubes
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • zest of one lemon
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh rosemary or thyme
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Glaze: 1 cup icing sugar plus 2 tbsp (approx) freshly squeezed lemon juice


  • In a large bowl, place the flour, baking powder, sugar, lemon zest, rosemary, blueberries and oats, along with a pinch of salt. Stir well.
  • Add the butter and mush it all together until the mixture starts to resemble coarse crumbs (you can use your hands for this step).
  • Beat the egg and milk together, then add to the dry ingredients. Stir well until it all comes together in a wet ball.
  • Sprinkle a little flour on your work surface, and place the scone ball on it. The dough will be wetish, so carefully pat it out into a circle. Cut the circle in half, then into quarters, then into eighths. Remove each triangle carefully to a parchment-lined baking pan. Brush with additional milk.
  • Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes, or until the scones are toasty on top.
  • Remove from oven and let cool on the pan slightly, then move to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • To glaze: Place the icing sugar in a small bowl, and slowly begin adding the lemon juice, a little at a time, until you get the right consistency. you want the glaze to be runny enough that it will drip off of a spoon or the end of your whisk, but not so runny that it's not opaque when it lands on the scone. Drizzle the glaze over the scones and serve.
